Sure wrinkles get all the attention. When a person sees a new wrinkle form outside her eyes, it’s time for panic. But the volume loss that accompanies aging is really far more visible. As our production of collagen, the protein that supports our skin, decreases with age, our skin sags across our body. Nowhere is this more evident than the face. Decreased collagen allows our cheeks to flatten and sink, our lips to thin and wrinkle, and the skin around our mouth to loosen and allow the development of wrinkles and creases.
Dermal fillers are mainly intended to counter volume loss. Dr. Hetzler offers the entire line of Juvéderm® dermal fillers to address this. The newest additions to that line is Juvéderm Vollure® XC. Juvéderm Vollure® XC was created to correct moderate to deep creases and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
What is Juvéderm Vollure® XC?
Juvéderm Vollure® XC is the newest addition to the Juvéderm® family of dermal fillers. It was developed as an extension of the original Juvéderm product, Juvéderm® XC. This was one of the first hyaluronic acid fillers and has been, along with Restylane, the world’s most popular injectable after Botox.
Where is Juvéderm Vollure® XC used?
Vollure® is designed for the correction of moderate to deep creases and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds running from the nose down to the corners of the mouth, parentheses lines framing the mouth, and marionette lines dropping downward from the corners of the mouth.
How is Vollure® different from the other fillers in the Juvéderm® line?
Each Juvéderm® filler is intended for a different area of the face. Juvéderm Vollure® XC is specifically intended to treat moderate to deep lines and creases around the nose and mouth. These demand more volume than, say, lip lines. Juvéderm Vollure® XC uses Vycross crosslinking, which is also used in Volbella® and Voluma®. This technology minimizes any swelling when Vollure® is injected.
How long will my results last with Juvéderm Vollure® XC?
Juvéderm Vollure® XC is the longest lasting hyaluronic acid filler on the market, providing volume for 18 months. That is six months longer than any other hyaluronic acid filler.
